I was introduced to recordings Strangefolk about four years ago, and I see them when they are around. They don’t play a lot, and it’s a special thing for me to see John (Trafton - who plays lead guitar and founded the band with Reid Genauer) play and sing his songs. Here’s a good one, from my local venue and shortly before Reid left:

Never saw them with Reid, who left Strangefolk in September 2000 and entered Cornell.
So here’s a great place to start exploring AOD – Reid solo in Ithaca, March 2001:
Assembly of Dust came together in 2002. I think the lead guitarist Adam Terrel, and keyboardist Nate Wilson are both fine players. They are involved with other projects also available here:;sort=-date

As you know we have loads of AOD recordings available to us here. I will happily contribute to future discussions of this band, but for now I just wanted to reply, having come back and noticed that I missed your post.

Here’s a good one from the Colonial, first of a two day New Year’s run:

I usually uncheck the “I’d like to receive email when someone responds to this post” when posting. Fortunately I now see the value in this option – I would have missed your reply as it dropped off the page before I was back here.

At the very least, Reid is a fabulous songwriter. I think he sings real well too – if you dig what you hear do check out some of his solo gigs - and the band really complements his songs and style.

How about a visual aid? Check out this clip of him playing ‘40 Reasons’ :
And a documentary style introduction to the whole band :;feature=related

Hope you enjoy. And thanks for the Spoon rec – I’ll check them out. Peace, Dan
